Bliss out with these performance-driven Vail spa treatments specifically designed for bikers, hikers and athletes making the most of Colorado’s great outdoors.
Real adventures call for real, mindful recoveries. Hiking and biking in the high country is mentally and physically rewarding and fabulous for the soul. But be sure to take the time to reset so you’re ready to hit your favorite trails again when the craving strikes.
Dryland Fitness + Spa inside Gravity Haus hotels in Vail is an 18,000-square-foot wellness facility with elevated offerings and expert massage and bodywork therapists. Curated recovery modalities and innovative equipment are on tap to reduce fatigue and inflammation and improve lung and muscle function.
Here are our top Vail spa picks for hiking and biking recovery this summer:
Magnesium Wellness Massage
After a long grueling ride up Vail Pass, restore muscles and recover completely with this full-body massage. Magnesium promotes healthy muscle and nerve function, restores energy and balances sleep patterns. Talented healing hands work their magic to ensure the essential mineral is absorbed through the skin for full relaxation.
Normatec Compression Boots
Revive sore 14er feet while promoting circulation, relieving muscle tension and decreasing swelling and inflammation. Customizable pneumatic pressure is applied to flush toxins from targeted leg muscle groups and speed up overall muscle recovery.
Hyperice X Contrast Therapy
Another experiential recovery method we love, Hyperice X alternates between hot and cold therapy to provide better circulation, increased inflammatory management and decreased pain to targeted knee areas.
Oxygen Inhalation Therapy
Mountain bikers: Take on the lung-busting black diamond Two Elk Trail and then treat those lungs to 30 minutes of enhanced oxygen therapy. You’ll reap benefits like improved energy, mood and concentration. Lavender aromatherapy calms and will have you sleeping like a baby later that night.
Thermotherapy Seaweed Recovery Wrap
An all around feel-good body treatment for hikers and bikers, this spa treatment harnesses the power of nature with lymphatic dry brushing, an infrared jade stone mat and re-mineralizing seaweed serum. Drink in deep hydration while cocooned warmth melts away tension as you experience a warm scalp and neck massage.
Vitamin C Facial
Hiking around Vail mountain in the sun at 10,000+ feet means your skin could use some love. Repair red, tired cells with thoughtfully sourced products from the renowned Skinceuticals line. This lavish treatment includes a deep cleansing, micropeel and antioxidant mask to protect against damage from the elements and reduce signs of aging.
Pro Spa Tips: Complimentary access to Dryland Fitness and unlimited fitness classes on the day of service are included with every treatment. The spacious Dryland facility provides a full cardio suite of Peloton bikes, a functional turf area, extensive strength equipment, inspired group fitness programming, yoga and meditation offerings.
